Measure Usage for actual usage, not for maximum setting
(cpu, memory, disk, network)
Thank you. Could you be more explicit about which resources and which metrics you are referring to?

idk if this is the right place, but since there is a agent installed on the vm why not capture the top 5 resource hogs for further troubleshooting.. i got kicked out my VM for high CPU usage, and will not start.. and i have no idea what is causing it.. and this is my 6th vm i been testing with.
It would also be very nice to be able to easily distinguish between a running VM (for which you want to do billing) and a stopped VM (for which you don't want to do billing, at least not for CPU and RAM).

Ideal scenario is billing based in IOPS, FUPS (processor time) and Memory allocation. Billing of simple activation of VM is not a good to present for client in elastic concept.

I think Marc is referring for measuring CPU usage of VM and not only the number of the virtual cores; measuring the actual memory used and not the maximum set if Dynamic memory is set on the VM; measuring Disk used space and not only maximum size of the disk.
